Regatta Pointe will be getting a major addition in 2008. They will be opening a new waterfront restaurant and new shower/bathroom facilities, laundry facilities, media room, club room and exercise facility will all be added.
The exterior will also be getting a major face-lift. They will be changing the current "Boston Harbor" theme to a "Grand Floridian" Key West style theme with softer colors and metal roof.
The new 4,000 square foot waterfront restaurant will have 180 degree panoramic views of the Manatee River. High-end European glass walls will be used that will allow the entire restaurant to either be completely open or closed depending on weather conditions. When opened up, the walls will nearly disappear allowing beautiful views of the water. Now, use your imagination here......Can't you just feel the warm Florida breezes blowing through as you enjoy your lunch or dinner? ;)
The restaurant will seat 150 inside and 60 outside on the water.
More information is to come in the Spring of 2008.
Sounds like these are going to be some wonderful changes. I can't wait to see what it looks like when completed. This is one of my favorite places in Manatee County already to go and if they add another restaurant overlooking the water, this is *fantastic*.
I think I will go take a bunch of photos of what it looks like now and when it's done I can do a "before and after" post of the changes. I bet it will drastic! It'll be good to see the theme changed to a Florida Key West style. I think it will be much nicer.
